steeling a body

we replaced the wood in my son's 22 dodge lakester and the 29 nash roadster. I used my old HF pipe bender and the round dies. I marked the sq tubing every inch and slid the pipe along each inch, with the round dies, just hold the tubing square, jack a little and watch the end move, then to the next spot, and work till it matches the patterns on a cardboard sheet. Cboy shows some dies he made to make tight radius bends in his eBook. here on hotrodders. He even made a large plywood "die" screwed to the side of his garage and a come-a -long to bend a long curve on one of his cars.
